The Insteon Fan and Light Controller is designed to easily incorporate both fan speed and light control within your INSTEON network. It is a dual-load responder simultaneously acting as a light fixture dimmer plus a 4 speed fan controller (Off, Low, Medium & High). Control the fan speed or lighting kit wirelessly from any INSTEON controller, be it a handheld remote, wall keypad or even your smartphone. Tie it in with a computer controller that can trigger all the fans in the house to turn on (at a predetermined speed) to help circulate the air, reducing costs associated with running your air conditioner.
How The Insteon Fan and Light Controller Works:
The Insteon Fan and Light Controller is compatible with most ceiling fans and installs inside the fan cowling between the fan and incoming power. You'll want to make sure you have access to both the fan and (if your fan has a lighting kit attached) the light control wires.
Before finalizing your Fan and Light Controller installation you'll want to link it to your selected controllers. Because you don't want to be removing your ceiling fan every time you want to add or remove links, we recommend using an Insteon Controller such as the ISY-994i series controller to manage all of this from your computer.
Note: Fan and Light Controller is not compatible with fans that have remote control built into the motor.
While there are a wide variety of INSTEON controllers to choose from, let us provide some suggestions...
For a truly wireless solution use a handheld 8-scene RemoteLinc to control the ceiling fan from the couch, bedside or mount it anywhere on the wall using a wall mount bracket.
For a more permanent solution, go with an in-wall 6-button KeypadLinc. KeypadLinc replaces any existing wall switch and provides wireless communications to the Fan and Light Controller.
Custom-etched keys are sold separately.
Links between RemoteLinc and Fan and Light Controller can be made manually however, software configuration recommended.
